Inspiring Quotes by Coretta Scott King

Women, if the soul of the nation is to be saved, I believe that you must become its soul.”  Coretta Scott King

It’s always been said that behind every great man is an extraordinary woman. This was even more true at the time Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King fought for racial equality. Coretta Scott King not only fought for racial equality, she bore the burden of gender inequality as well. It did not hold her back. Today as we honor one man’s legacy, let us also honor the woman who stood beside him, fought with him, suffered with him and was ultimately left a widow to carry on his dream in his absence. Her’s was not an easy journey in this life, but despite everything, she made a difference.  She had a dream. She believed in her husband’s dream. She believed in freedom and justice for everyone. She understood the powerful truth that, “if the soul of the nation is to be saved” then the soul of women must be front and center. Thank you, Coretta Scott King for your strength, courage and commitment to a better world, and to dedicating your life to this cause.  Thank you for supporting your husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. as he created the legacy we celebrate today.  Dorothy

  1. All the quotes are great, but the one that stands out is this: ” Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation,” illustrated vividly in our current culture. Very appropriate to post this on our national holiday honoring King.
